This project was carried out with my collaborators within the group D-Fuse. We were invited to submit a proposal for an ‘art event’ to be held in Ostienze Market, a district in the southern part of Rome. The market had been closed down and the local authority wished to redevelop it. The organisers of the event wished to hand the space over to artists to see how their interpretation of the space could suggest alternative use. Artists such as Achim Wollscheid, Justin Bennet and Janek Schaefer were also invited.
Our proposal focused on the history of Rome. This is an aspect of the city that it cannot ignore. The center of Rome is dominated by the remains of the Roman Empire. This history sits alongside contemporary Rome, but does not stifle it. The layers of Rome’s past are carved out, and it was this layering that became the focus of the proposal. The re-invent Ostienze, we needed to reveal the layers of the future.
To do this we filmed the disused market in a specific manner. By holding the camera vertically we followed [traced] the walls and structures of the existing buildings. This footage was then edited to into separate films that could be mixed at a live event. The Spanish musician Fibla, took the footage we created to develop a sound score which he would also play live. Our initial idea was to re-instate the flow of goods from delivery, to the warehouse’s, to the market place, all of which traverse the Tiber river, the main road south out of Rome and a railway line, in and out of Rome. The idea was used as a focal point for a lecture given to Architectural Students from the University of Rome.
